About FixUp

What if there was a way to get help immediately by connecting with a fixit coach who would guide you through the process step by step using the video feature of your iPhone? With the FixUp iPhone app, this is all possible.


In an ideal world, we would automatically know how to fix something when it breaks, and it would be repaired at a moment’s notice. In the real world, however, it’s a time consuming and expensive process. Contactors are often not available, and you need to wait around for long windows of time just to get charged for an estimate.

What if there was a way to get help immediately by connecting with an expert who would guide you through the fixing process step by step using the video feature of your Iphone? With the new FixUp app, this is all possible. On the spot, numerous house and car issues get resolved – clogged drains, electrical shorts, flat tires, broken appliances, crashed computers or just about anything at all.


Once in the app, you’re able to see which professional handymen are immediately available and view their rates, reviews and expertise. You then contact the best one for you, tell them your issue, and, utilizing the mobile video feature of your phone, they walk you through how to fix it (or at least identify what parts to get). The typical contractor’s phrase, “Well, I need to come over and see it” is now eliminated because he or she is “seeing it” through the Iphone. After the video consultation is over, your item is ideally fixed, and the contractor is automatically paid his per minute rate which you agreed to before hand. No waiting for a return call. No waiting for someone to come to the house. It’s all immediate and seamless.
